Fuel problem with 03 alero.......Sputtered, died, now wont stop

The vehicle just began sputtering like gas wasnt getting through and then it died. Now it the ignition tries to start the car and a small amount of gas get through and tries to start the car but the it sputters and then goes dry and it wont start. This problem happened in 100 degree weather. Checked fuses and they appear to be fine. Battery is fine and car turns over fine. Also, recently there have been periods of electrical issues like lights coming on and temporary outages of the air conditioning and other functions. Electrical or fuel issue ??

I am having the same exact issue right now with my 01 Alero. Been having electrical issues with lights coming on and off. ABS was kicking on a few times even. It started sputtering like it was running out of gas, thought that might have been the case. But after I put gas in it it still didn't start. Now it turns over but nothing. What ended up being wrong with yours?

Turn the ignition switch to run, without starting it. You should hear the electric fuel pump, in the gas tank, run for about 3 to 4 seconds, until it builds to proper pressure. If it is not humming along it needs replaced.

While idling it began to sputter and died. It is


Replace the fuel filter. Have someone listen at the gas cap while you turn the ignition on without starting the engine. They should hear the fuel pump for a few seconds. If you hear nothing then either the fuel pump is bad, fuse is blown, or the fuel pump relay is bad. If you hear the pump it still may be defective and weak. A fuel pressure test will verify this.

Forget about the Nissan dealer and take your vehicle to one of the auto parts suppliers to have a diagnosis made, then find a competent mechanic to confirm the diagnosis and make necessary repairs.

03 Alero will start but dies right away


It sounds like your fuel filter has gone it life time and now to dirty to permit the proper fuel flow if any.
Start with checking the fuel pressure at the shredder valve, you should have over 45 PSI i believe but could be wrong, can not remember could be 60 PSI. 
If you can not check the fuel pressure, change the fuel filter first then see if it starts. If it does not, then it may be a bad fuel pump and need to be replaced. The fuel pump is electric and have a life time too and it may be at it's end also.
Good luck and keep me posted.

93 honda civic ex sputtered and died while driving


Is there any white smoke coming out the exhaust? Sounds like the same problem my friend had when he warped his head on his 91 civic. Any overheating at all? Otherwise another guess would be maybe a bad catalitic converter that clogged up. Hope this helps any, good luck
